Photo day 2 - SHOES

I had a tough time with this topic.  Shoes... I LOVE shoes and we've chatted about how I painted my wedding shoes and that I'm going to be strassing them out over the summer some time.  I would have picked them - I love the idea of them when complete. But I can't show you a picture of them without any crystals. 

So I dove into my closet and started playing dress up with my shoes.  I was going to go with my standard footwear for this time of year.  The Flip Flop.  Eah.  Too typical for a beach bum like myself (I don't actually wear shoes to the beach.  I wear them in the car to drive over, but most of the time I don't bother with them on the way home.  Driving barefoot is an interesting experience - not sure if it's legal, but eah.)

Then I pulled out my UGGS from the Tupperware.  It's 80 some degrees here, but I still slipped my foot into the furry goodness.  My toes were so happy.  Hot, but happy.  So they were a no go for the picture. 

I almost gave up and reverted to my wedding shoes when I say theeeeese peaking out from the bottom of the box. 

Purple and Pink some type of skin heels.  I found these when I was in college.  I rocked them out to many a party.  They are in verrrry poor shape now (almost 7 years old - yikes!) I love them dearly. 


The heel isn't too high either.

You can see that they are worn - like on the heel here.  That's from wearing jeans with them.  Boo!!

Such a hot pattern.  These shoes are bad ass.  When I bought them, they were on clearance at a place like Burlington Coat Factory... random.

Poor Shoes.  You have helped me dance many  night away.  You were there the night I met Mr. ST.  We've had plenty of fun.  I love you dearly.  I can't bring myself to throw you out just left.  You still have a little life left in you.  <3

What are YOUR favorite shoes?  Have you held on to a pair for over 7 years?  I'm not hoarding.  Promise.  Just loving.

I would keep those shoes for 7 years too if I had them, they are so cute. I have a whole bag of shoes in my car that I have been meaning to take to get the heels repaired..when I find a pair of shoes I love, I hate to part with them!! Can't wait to see your wedding shoes completed!

They are bad ass! I've got a couple of pairs of boots that are about 8 years, one pair being a pair of nine west boots, which still remain to be my favourite boots.
